1960’s Oscar de la Renta for Elizabeth Arden Silk Floral Dress

About

This fabulous dress by Elizabeth Arden was most probably designed by Oscar de la Renta whilst he was the Head Designer in 1961-63. The dress is made from stunning plum coloured silk taffeta with a pink floral print and and fine green metallic stripes. With a full skirt and midi length this piece will give you a classic early 1960’s silhouette. The skirt is lined in in a matching plum lining with netting to add volume. The bodice is boned and lined in grosgrain silk to give extra support. The dress also features a beautifully pleated neckline, matching velvet bows to the back and front of the waist and a centre back zip fastening. Very feminine and in excellent condition.

About Oscar De La Renta (Designer)

    Oscar de la Renta was not just a designer for the ages but a designer for women of all ages — from Hollywood starlets to silver-haired doyennes, from fashion icons (Sarah Jessica Parker) to iconic brides (Amal Alamuddin Clooney), from leading ladies of hip-hop (Nicki Minaj) to First Ladies of the United States (Jacqueline Kennedy all the way through to Michelle Obama). The secret to his broad and enduring appeal? “I have always thought that my role as a designer is to do the very best I can for a woman,” de la Renta told 1stdibs in a 2010 profile.

    And for de la Renta, doing the very best meant making a woman feel beautiful, glamorous and full of confidence, whether she was walking down the red carpet or a crowded city street. "You carry the clothes, the clothes don't carry you," he went on to say in our story.

    A perennial favorite on 1stdibs, Oscar de la Renta designs evolved over the years, as the large selection of items below attests, but whether bolero or ball gown, vintage or current, the pieces exude elegant sophistication and enduring originality — much like the man himself.
